Video: Anti-Obama Chanting In Middle East Reflects Obama's Declining Approval Rate Among Muslims

Much is being made of the anti-Muhammed video, to the extent that the initial attack on the US embassies in Cairo and Benghazi, the murder of US ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff -- and the continuing wave of anti-US protests are all being blamed on that video.

Thus the chant of "Obama, we are all Osama" is not supposed to be a reflection of anti-US sentiment, but just a reaction to an insult to Muhammed.

But if these protests are in fact due only to the video and are not a reaction to the US in general and the Obama administration in particular -- why is it that Muslims were already chanting "Obama, we are all Osama" 4 months ago back in May?

The fact is the Muslim world has been less than pleased with Obama for a while.

Daniel Pipes documented Obama's declining approval rating in a post back in 2010, and has been updating that post ever since:

The White House already spins this as a victory for democracy and self determination in the Mideast. Arson and murder are the White House version of the Muslim Bill of Rights.

I have not seen this being spun by the Obama administration as a victory for Democracy -- only that the video is the sole cause.

As far as self-determination, the "Arab Spring" has not shaped up that way.

I saw quotes of Obama praising the Arab Spring last year -- specifically in Cairo and Benghazi.

Talk about irony.
